What people are saying about Bacalar

An unforgettable sea trip We spent 4 hours with my companion, wonderful, exotic and out of time The crew was charming, attentive and very good sailors! The fruit platter was excellent and refreshing, having the right to fresh fruit while sailing on the lagoon is still a real paradise! The guacamole accompanied by its tortillas at the end of the day crowned this dream day! Very nice memories

David and Captain Carlos gave us the trip of a lifetime. So informative and kind. The colors of Lake Bacalar are not like anything I’ve ever seen or imagined. The refreshments were a nice touch, though a bit sparse (a small fruit plate), but the beer and other drinks were fabulous. I would do this tour again as many times as possible.

We went om a trip with our guide Diana. She is great! She answered all our questions and made sure we had a very relaxing trip. Would go with her next time too

Very nice sailing excursion, highly recommended! The majestic crew, a very good way to get to know Bacalar.

It was just a fantastic afternoon. Everything as described. 5 Stars
